Code For Freedom Contest

I planned out this workshop after taking feedback from everyone from in my OSUM club. The date we finally decided upon was just one week before our examinations. We then did online registrations for participants via email. In a couple of days we got around sixty registrations. Finally on the day of the workshop, the venue I had booked was being used for some other purpose. So, I took permission to use another auditorium as the venue and sent out SMS messages to all the participants about the venue change. After settling down at the new venue, I informed the participants about the contest, its rules and regulations, SUN technologies they can use, its benefit and finally the grand prizes.

I was happy to see the response of the students who were all very enthusiastic about participating in the contest. I asked them to register for it and clarified their doubts regarding it with the help of Tirthankar Das, OHAC engineer who is one of the coordinators of the contest.

I also asked all the participants to join OSUM and encourage their friends to do the same too. I told them about the benefits of joining it and what an useful and fun website it is.

Later on we also discussed ideas for projects to be submitted in the contest. I was extremely satisfied with the successful completion of the workshop.
